Why I won’t cry over October 5th anymore

October 5th, 2011 was a sad day. A super-sad day. It was the day that Sarah Palin decided not to run for president. It was definitely an I-must-not-throw-up-in-public kind of super-sad day, especially since I was helping host a student government function as first-year class president (at this current time, I blame the “Breaking News” app on my iPhone that alerted me of this travesty).

Oh, many have told me that it was for the best. Some reiterated that she was just a kingmaker, nothing more. Some have told me she wouldn’t have made a good president anyway.

I believe that she is more. She is more than what anyone could ever expect in a person and a politician. She has a record that no one can compare to nor deny. Palin is far more than a kingmaker. She has a vision for America: we could come together as one nation under God and restore this country to its greatness.

Notice that I’m not using past tense. Why? Because she is not done with this country yet. I believe that she is holding her cards close, making sure that no one sees what she is up to. If you haven’t already noticed, she has always been this way. Making sure no one sees, then BAM! It’s a surprise to all. It may make her supporters antsy and cause the media to roll their eyes, but this is how Palin works and we must be able to work with her.

I am a firm believer in miracles. Sure, there might be a block in her way that prevents her from running and we might pray for a miracle that the block may be removed. But her decision is her decision and we must respect it as much as we humanly can. There is a group on Facebook called “Sarah Palin’s Earthquake” (a reference to her saying that it will take a 10.3 earthquake for her to run), and it has over 5,000 members. I am not part of that group because I believe that her decision is her decision and there’s nothing we can do about it.

I’m not going to cry over October 5th. What happened, happened. The Republican candidates, however? Well, they are going to have to earn my vote. I won’t give it up easily or at all. There has to be a candidate that is almost like Ronald Reagan or Sarah Palin, and so far I see none of that.

It’s time for me to move on. Not from Sarah Palin (whom I will always support 110%), but with restoration of our country. Let’s start with the Senate and the House, shall we? As Mushu says to Mulan in Disney’s “Mulan,” “Let’s kick some honey-buns!”
